YARD EXPECTATIONShttp://cam.scdsb.on.ca/about-us/news/school-news/287YARD EXPECTATIONS<p>​Dear Families,</p><p>Today your child(ren) will be bringing home a letter regarding our revised Yard Expectations that will be effective January 8th, 2018.  Please take a moment to review.<br></p><p><a href="/PublishingImages/Lists/LocalNews/AllItems/Safe%20Welcome%20Expectations.pdf"><img class="ms-asset-icon ms-rtePosition-4" src="/_layouts/15/images/icpdf.png" alt="" />Safe Welcome Expectations.pdf</a><br></p>
Classroom Celebration Food Expectationshttp://cam.scdsb.on.ca/about-us/news/school-news/275Classroom Celebration Food Expectations<p>A focus of our new school action plan involves improving the nutritional value of food that we both sell and eat at school.  </p><p>Celebrations like birthdays, holidays and end-of-year classroom parties often involve foods and drinks that are high in sugar, fat, salt and empty calories. Tying less nutritious foods to celebrations sends the message that fun and 'treats' go together. This can lead to eating more of these foods (and fewer nutritious foods). Improving the quality of food prevents this from happening and puts the focus on the real reason for the celebration!</p><p>We also have many students with severe allergies to nuts, gluten and dairy.</p><p>Let's work together to make classroom celebrations both fun and healthy.  If you are sending food into the classroom with your child, please make it fruit or veggies instead of candy, cookies and cupcakes.</p><p>Here is a suggested snack list:</p><ul><li>Veggies and dip</li><li>Whole grain muffins and fresh orange wedges</li><li>Fruit tray, fruit kabobs, cut up fruit</li><li>Whole grain crackers and cheese cubes </li><li>Yogurt, whole grain cereal and berries for parfaits</li></ul><p>We all thank you for your support.</p>
